Notes for Levi Dungan:
In 1771, Levi and his family removed to Delaware, as on Nov. 3rd of this year he was taken into communion at the Welsh Tract Baptist Meeting. (Pages 32 and 59, Part 1). His wife's parents were buried in the Meeting House grounds. "Mary Davis wife of David Davis, teaching elder, buried July 24, 1743." (Ibid, page 69).

In 1772, Levi, accompanied by his wife and several small children, removed to Beaver County, Pa, and located at the head of King's Creek, where the village of Frankfort Springs now stands. Here he erected a log house which was built to serve both as a dwelling and fort, and was located directly over a spring. His wife Mary was well qualified to be a helpmate for her husband in their wilderness home. Before her marriage she made her home with Dr. Benjamin Rush, to whom she was related, and with whom she studied medicine, until he went to Edinburgh, Scotland, to complete his training. Upon his departure, the library which they had jointly accumulated, became, by mutual agreement, her property. After her marriage she took a portion of the library with her to the wilderness and continued her studies. At one time, on account of the danger of attack by Indians, she concealed the books to guard against their loss by fire and they became badly mildewed.

The following incident of the use she made of her surgical knowledge is from the MS. of her grandson Lieutenant Governor, Warren Scott Dungan: "Two neighbors, William Langfitt and Isaac Wiseman, had been to a mill on King's Creek to get some corn ground; on their way home they were attacked by Indians; Wiseman was instantly killed and Langfitt was shot several times through the body but managed to keep his seat on the horse, which carried him over the trail to Levi Dungan's house; there was no surgeon nearer than Fort Pitt, and Mrs. Dungan set about at once attending to the man's needs. With a knitting needle she packed the bleeding wounds with strips from a handkerchief, and with compress and bandage arrested the hemorrhage. Langfitt recovered and lived to the advanced age of 96 years, dying August 23, 1831. In 1789, she made a journey on horseback to Philadelphia, taking with her money to enter the location of the tract upon which they had settled, and brought back the Patent for 1000 acres, dated Sept. 1, 1789.

Sept. 14, 1778, Levi Dungan enlisted in Colonel James Wright's Youghegenia Militia, which was in actual service under Col. John Stevenson. (Penna. Archives. 2nd Series, Vol. 14, p. 678 and p. 691).

During the war, the Indians becoming very troublesome, Levi removed his family to Chartier's Creek in what is now Washington County, Pa., and then enlisted in Captain Thomas Rankin's 4th Battalion, Washington County Militia. (Penna. Arch. 6th Series, Vol. 2, p. 143).
Much of interest concerning Levi Dungan will be found in "History of Beaver County, Pa." and in H. L. Folker's "Levi Dungan, the Pioneer."
